Wyzant Tutor Rating: 5 of 5 (73 ratings total)
Professor of Chemistry and Organic Chemistry, Yale University Ph.D.
I am a professor of chemistry and organic chemistry with 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I am currently an Adjunct Prof. at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, CA and am interested in tutoring general or organic chemistry part-time. I received my undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry from the University of Redlands in Redlands, CA, and I received my graduate degrees (MS, PhD) from Yale University in New Haven, CT.
As an undergraduate, I tutored general and organic che…
Sarah F. from Lake Forest, CA He simplified the concept and broke it down so that it was easy to follow, understand, and apply. It made a huge difference in my understanding of that and helped to understand the concept so well that I was able to explain the same concept to others.
Mostafa S. from Irvine, CA I chose John randomly from Wyzant database. I needed a crash course in HS chemistry. I wasn't really sure what to expect. Well, it turned out that John is a very gifted teacher, not to mention a PhD in OChem! He is able to convey a difficult and tedious subject in a crystal clear and simple way. Within few classes, he helped me cover weeks? worth of topics in inorganic chemistry. What helped me make the best of John?s time is to prepare a list of questions prior to the class. Some of the resources that I used explained different topics in a convoluted way. Luckily, John was quick to point out easier ways to understand the issue(s) at hand. I also liked that John?s office is quiet and without distractions. I recommend John without any reservation!
Nikki Y. from Seal Beach, CA I came to John for help in Organic Chemistry. He was very knowledgeable about basic and more advanced topics. He explained things in a way that was easy to understand. After he cleared up a few concepts that I was unsure about, he even went ahead in my book and taught me future reactions that I learned later in the course. I highly recommend John as a tutor, he was very helpful.
Karen J. from Irvine, CA John was invaluable to my daughter through a very tough AP Chem course. He was exceedingly patient and always available. He would even review problems by phone and email for last minute tests and quizzes. John is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He gave her the confidence to succeed in this class!
Michelle T. from Irvine, CA I highly recommend John as a cooperative tutor to all students who are seeking help and improvement in organic chemistry. He's very knowledgeable and informative regarding his subject.
Sophia S. from Irvine, CA John is an incredible tutor - his patient and calm demeanor makes for a comfortable learning environment and his easy to follow explanations provide a perfect foundation for further knowledge. He sets you up for success by giving you a way to approach problems and understand what each type is asking for. He works out each problem on a whiteboard and talks through each step-it is insanely helpful! It really allows for you to take things slow and understand what is going where. I used John as a tutor for organic chemistry, I'm a student at UC Irvine and I was in my third quarter of ochem. As a professor himself, John was able to answer ANYTHING I asked and related the ochem I had learned in my previous quarters back to what he was explaining. It really helped me to see the connections between information. Tutoring from John is that one-on-one extra office hour you so need with the professor but never get because of all the students. If you need help in chemistry - this is your guy, he is really really amazing.
Allie C. from Irvine, CA Absolutely amazing tutor! Such a sweet guy and is so helpful! He explains everything to me and is always very patient. Finally someone made it make sense to me!
Susan M. from Yorba Linda, CA John was a fantastic tutor for organic chemistry. He taught me all the mechanisms and the theory behind reactions, not just the reagents. His patient style of teaching works really well!
